Nurse Edna Biancaniello says it’s exciting watching one of her fellow nurses bring to the forefront how hard health care workers work.
“It’s surreal at this point that we’ve gotten this far into the competition,” Biancaniello says. “And I think we really stand a chance of winning at this point.”
Melanie Lopez-Humann, also of South Shore University Hospital, says no matter what the result is the group of singing nurses are already winners.
The Northwell Nurses Choir can win $1 million if they get first place in the competition.
